About this project

IF YOU WANT AN EXTRA COPY OF THE GAME JUST ADD $40 TO YOUR PLEDGE

The King’s Abbey is a worker placement/resource management game where each player has their own player board that represents the abbey they have been tasked to build. Players are in charge of monks that are represented by 10 dice as they go out and gather resources, go on crusades, construct buildings, train clergy, bring in peasants, and defend their abbey against the ever increasing darkness. Each player does this by rolling their dice and then assigning each die (monk) to different places on their player board, main board, and crusade cards. The places on the player boards will bring in peasants and train clergy and defend the abbey. The places on the main board will give them wood, grain, stone, and sand for building the various parts of their individual abbeys.

Each player receives prestige (victory points) for completing crusades and constructing various things in their abbey such as towers and different kinds of buildings.The game proceeds over a total of 7 rounds where the "darkness" becomes greater each round.The ever increasing darkness represents things like depression, famine, raiders attacking, and other things that the Dark Ages brought with it.You fight the darkness by keeping the defenses of your abbey strong. Each player is trying to have the most prestige than any other player by the end of the 7th round

The King's Abbey is a game with a theme that takes you right into the 11th century.  This is a time where great abbeys were a central part of the Middle Ages.

  •  Do you need to play The King's Abbey before you pledge? Now you can!  Please be aware that this is prototype art that is near final design and some cards and components are subject to change.  Although they are near final, they do not necessarily represent the final version. 
  • Because this has a large main board, I have included sections of the board to be able to print and play.  You will need to find another way to keep track of score because on the main board is where players do their scoring. 
  • You will also need to gather a few other components to play this game.  You will need the following for each player:
  • 10 dice
  • 15 small cubes and 1 other to keep track of clergy training.
  • 1 token representing the altar
  • 1 large cube to track your defense
  • 5 sticks for building walls
  • You will also need:
  • 1 pawn to track the Darkness. 
  • 1 start player token
  • 4 black dice for Vikings. (or another color that is not being used)

Risks and challenges

There is a first for everything. This game is a first for me. The King's Abbey was a idea that came to me one morning like a tidal wave, and I have been working very hard everyday for months to bring it to pass. There is always a risk when helping to fund a game designer that you have never heard of. I get it, but I have worked really hard on the mechanics and the art is done by a very talented graphic designer; Anna Talanova. I have a great manufacturer that is making this game, and I am positive you will will be very pleased with the quality that will even surpass the prototype you see in the videos. Not to mention the amazing fun and hours of re-playability this game has to offer!
